Enjoying this thread...

http://goccf.com/t/419928

I am curious to know if there is any info on the concentration of Red Poppies and Coronations in each Australian city found by noodlers? That is, although very rare, where am I most likely to find each one?

They are both extremely rare in circulation,all you can do is noodle Bank coin rolls/bags on a regular basis.

As Basil stated, they are too rare (especially the red poppy) to provide any meaningful statistics. It may have been relevant 8-10 years ago when they were more prevalent but they have pretty well been noodled to extinction by now (bit like the '66 wavy). You could argue that the states with the larger populations contain a higher percentage of coinage ergo a higher chance of the rarities being found. Then again, it may be the states with lower socioeconomic status might produce more rarities as people desperate for money raid the old piggy banks or steal grandpas coins to spend on booze and fags. Similar to how do NCLT coins that were purchased above face value end up in circulation.

On 15th June this year I scored a 2013 "Coronation - 60th" $2 from the till at my local Post Office, they are still in the pond but need a lot of fishing to catch one.

How exactly does distribution of coins from the mint work and is this published anywhere? e.g. Do they go to each capital city in the first instance or only to certain cities?

Anecdotally, I find myself in Victoria over the last month and have found numerous firefighter $2 coins, lots of 2016 Olympics and several Flanders Field, plus a green dove. Interestingly, have found no honey bee, no 75th anniversary ww2 and no 2021 indigenous coin. In QLD, have found in last few months heaps of honey bees, 2021 indigenous and ww2 but never a firefighter or Flanders Field. It seems very geographically localised as to what one finds.

CTB used to receive the Coins direct from the Mint up until the 1990's(Keating Privatisation),they then distributed them to the other Banks.At least that's how I understood the system.
What City received what was based on need,as the Coins were in sealed bags there was no way of knowing dates etc.
These days apparently the Mint delivers them direct to Security Co.'s
who break the bags into rolls/bags before deliveries to Banks but Posters on here will know more about that distribution.

Some Historians/Researchers claim the 1930 Penny was first ID in Sydney during the 1940's Coin shortage.
They were found in Sydney at this time but the obvious flaw in that theory is that they may have been released elsewhere and migrated to Sydney.
The same applies to rare dates these days,no way of knowing where they were released originally,just as much chance of noodling a 'Red Poppy' in Perth or Sydney,or even 'woop woop', as anywhere else.
Noodlers just have to put in the time and get lucky.

You are at least 8 years too late to find 2012 red poppy or 2013 purple coronation in any kind of concentration.

That's my understanding too - Armaguard and Prosegur at least deliver rolls to banks - Chubb has too but not sure if they still do.
I'm not sure how they get from the mint to the security companies but I assume they have depots in New South Wales that accept new coins from the bank and distribute the rolled coins around the country from there.
